HEART OF THE FLAME
Dragon Chalice series: Book 2

Six months in an enemy's dungeon might have broken a weaker man, but former Templar knight Kenrick of Clairmont has emerged from imprisonment with an unyielding determination, and consumed by a single daunting quest: to find the Dragon Chalice, a mystical treasure said to grant its bearer unlimited power. It is a dangerous chase, one that pits Kenrick against foes skilled in dark, deadly arts. But no obstacle will prove more treacherous--nor more seductively lethal--than the fiery beauty called Haven.

Caught up in the battle for the Chalice, Haven survives a night of terror that leaves her wounded and near death. Her memory scorched by fever, Haven awakens to find herself in the care of the forbidding, handsome Kenrick, who offers his protection in return for her alliance. A tenuous trust is formed between them, which soon ignites into a fierce passion neither can deny. But Haven's memory of her past is slowly beginning to surface, and it will threaten the fragile bond she and Kenrick share--and embroil them in a fight for their very lives. . . .

“A richly imagined, paranormal-tinged historical . . . dark, exquisitely sensual and beautifully written.” –Booklist

I loved Heart of Flame more than the first book. This takes a forbidden love and the trials they need to go through to achieve it. I found it heart-warming and I couldn't put it down. If you liked the first book, by all means get this one. I'm moving onto the next one. To Lara, I read that there are seven books in this series that you wrote years ago and are re-releasing. Only 3 are available on B&N. Please release the other 5, I'll be first in line.

This is the second book in the search for the pieces of the Dragon Chalice with new heros picking up the battle to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands and returning the chalice to the rightful owners. The saga continues with new characters picking up where others have begun new lives. The action continues!

I liked this book but not as well as the first one.  Not as much action as the first one.  The best parts were Braedon giving Kenrick a hard time about falling in love!  so true interaction between men and heart-warming to read after knowing Braedon's dark past.  I loved the continued glimpse of Braedon and Ariana as a couple although **SPOILER ALERT** I would have liked to read about Ariana telling Braedon their happy news and his reaction.  Still good series and I'm on to the third book to learn about how Rand overcomes his tragedy.

Another great book by this author. This is book 2, and I feel it is helpful to read book 1 first. Great characters, and I couldn't put it down. My heart ache over some of the story lines, didn't see the story ending as it did. Loved it though. Can't wait for book 3.
